In 1990, former State of Play guitarist Dean Garcia and vocalist Toni Halliday reunited as the duo Curve. The band would meld the contemporary sounds of darker alternative rock with a pop sensibility, resulting in a sound that was pure coolness. It was obvious from their debut EP, Blindfold, that the band had struck upon a unique formula. “Ten Little Girls” was their introduction to the world, and a stunning one at that; their debut album, Doppelgänger, and its follow-up, Cuckoo, have both been remastered and expanded by 3 Loop Music, and now one can get all of the music the then-prolific group had to offer, and one will be surprised at the high quality level to be found therein; though their career would falter shortly, the early years were a quite promising time.
Doppelgänger and Cuckoo are available now from 3 Loop Music.
